Chicken caesar salad pasta bake

March 10, 2015

This is definitely one of my favorite dinners to make, and its pretty simple as most of my recipes are. I know when we all hear the word pasta we think “oh no, I cant eat that” but you can if you keep it in moderation, meaning don’t go eating pasta everyday and expect to have any points left 😉 This pasta bake is loaded with chicken and cheese and is super filling! Sometimes I add a little aioli sauce if I’m in the mood for a garlicky dinner. Be sure to have cooked shredded chicken on hand, and cook your pasta first. The whole family should like this one 🙂 Serves 6 at 6 freestyle smart points per serving.

    I have made and enjoyed a few of your recipes recently. Thanks for sharing. But sometimes, like with this one, when I use the recipe builder, my points don’t come out the same. With this one, even tho I used nuPasta instead of regular pasta and therefore have less points, I still ended up with 7 SP instead of the 6 SP that you got. What am I doing wrong?

      Hi Deborah, all I can pin it to is different brands of products, I have to enter what I use.. And if you’re in the U.S and I am in Canda sometimes those might be different brands/point values
